EWTB welcomes new members on World TB Day 2022
Ending Workplace TB (EWTB) is pleased to welcome three new members to the network.
Tata Consultancy Services, the second largest company to so far join EWTB in terms of numbers of employees, alongside Sequella, the network's smallest company in terms of employees, and Kempinski Hotels - a company with an extensive history of supporting TB care and prevention measures in their workforces and communities.
The three companies follow from Accenture, Apollo Tyres, and PrimeFuels Kenya Ltd, who all joined the network late last year. To date, EWTB has over 25 multinational companies in its network, representing an estimated 2.5 million direct employees and many tens of millions more in partners and supply chains.
BEHealth, an expert provider of peer education programming, has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with EWTB.
TCS have already conducted a number of TB awareness programmes within their team and are considering options for community-focused efforts in India alongside the National TB Control Program and the Corporate TB Pledge. Sequella, a pharmaceutical company looking to secure approval of two new TB drugs, are currently in third position in EWTB's World TB Day step challenge: March 4 TB (www.march4tb.org)
Over the coming months, EWTB will announce further new members and is aiming to double its employee-base by the end of the second quarter of 2022. For further information on what we're doing, take a look at www.ewtb.org/case-studies.
